STRIKER Gethyn Hill said he was delighted to get off the mark for Hereford.

The marksman is on a month's loan from Weston-Super-Mare, but showed the Edgar Street crowd what he can do by firing in a cracking equaliser against Merthyr Town on Monday.

"Getting the first goal at a new club is always tough, but now that's out the way I can focus on getting some more and pushing the team forward," said Hill.

"We were piling on the pressure at the end and you get a goal and the crowd gets up for it.

"It came at a good time but I think if we had got it a little bit earlier we could have potentially have got the second.

"The way the game was going, we felt we could have got a lot more from it.

"They didn't really get many chances, I think it was just the free-kick that hit the target.

"We were just a little bit disappointed that we couldn't get an earlier goal and threaten them a little bit more."

Hill said he is looking at building up his fitness at Hereford, but has pleased with hos his partnership with John Mills has fared during the two games he has played.

"It's always tough coming into a new team and you've got to build those relationships quickly," said Hill.

"I think we play well together .

"Myself and Millsy are different players and can bounce off each other.

"It's about getting the partnership stronger and I think the goals will come.

"These were my first two games of the season, which has been tough.

"We will see how it goes, but I'm enjoying it at the moment and will see what happens in a month's time."
